In terms of upgrades, the new TVS Radeon features the Indian two-wheeler manufacturer’s proprietary TVS’ Intelligo (ISG and ISS system). This system turns off the engine during prolonged idling at traffic lights and other transient pauses. And when the rider swirls the throttle once, it restarts the engine. The company claims that this technology helps in reducing fuel waste during stops at traffic signals.

Furthermore, in addition to the systems mentioned above the new 2022 TVS Radeon also gets the longest seat in the segment. Apart from that TVS has also given the Radeon more useful amenities such as a USB charger. In terms of changes in aesthetics, it gets chrome-plated headlamps and rearview mirrors. A front disc brake is included in the braking system.

TVS will be offering the new Radeon in four different configurations which will be a base edition and Dual Tone Edition Drum with Reverse LCD Cluster, Dual Tone Edition Drum with Reverse LCD Cluster & ISG/ISS, and Dual Tone Edition Disc with Cluster. The company also offers the commuter bike in a variety of colours, including Dual Tone Red & Black and Dual Tone Blue & Black, in addition to the standard edition colours (Starlight Blue, Metal Black, Royal Purple & Titanium Grey).

2022 Radeon like its previous iteration is built on a new single-cradle tubular steel chassis with telescopic oil-damped front forks and 5-step adjustable rear hydraulic shock absorbers, at the rear. The TVS Radeon sits on large 18-inch alloy wheels shod with its own Dura Grip tyres. The Radeon has a low seat height and a long wheelbase of 1,265 mm. The new TVS commuter motorcycle offers 180 mm of ground clearance.

The TVS Radeon is powered by a 109.7-cc single-cylinder engine that produces 8.28 bhp @ 7,000 rpm and 8.7 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm. TVS also claims that the Radeon has a fuel economy of 69.3 km/l. With its 10-litre fuel tank, the Radeon has a claimed range of 693 kilometres on a single tank of fuel.

In other TVS news, earlier in June, we reported to you that a media report has claimed that TVS could be finally launching the Zeppelin R in the coming weeks, a naked sports bike that the company showcased back in 2018. Till now, there have been no test mules spotted but TVS has filed a trademark for the Zeppelin nameplate. If launched, the Zeppelin R will compete directly against the Bajaj Avenger 220.
